Lauren: "My Red Centre adventure was a fantastic trip where I had the opportunity to explore Central Australia in the Northern Territory. Through the trip I visited Uluru, one of Australia's most culturally significant icons which was beautiful (especially watching the sunset changing its colours). I stayed in great campsites in the area and was able to hike King's Canyon and Kata Tjuta National parks. The national parks were full of Australia native flora and fauna and the bush land was stunning (also loved seeing the deep red dirt!). Engaging in Aboriginal culture was a highlight of the trip where we learned about traditional foods, arts and medicine. Going on an astronomy tour at the Earth Sanctuary World Nature Centre was memorable after experiencing a full night sky of stars. My trip was all booked and organised by Tourism Central Australia, their insight and connections made my experience tailored to my specific interests and was everything I was hoping for. One of the most enjoyable trips I've been on and l definitely plan on heading back to see more!"


Lauren visited the #RedCentreNT from Northern NSW, Australia. She brought her mum and they set off on a self-guided tour from Alice Springs down to the Rock and Kings Canyon. The adventure consisted of: a stop at Curtin Springs for a 'Paper Tour' to learn all about creating paper from the local grasses found on the farm! Checking out Uluru and Kata-Tjuta and completing the 10.6km base walk around Uluru and the 7.6km circuit through Kata-Tjuta. Driving to Kings Canyon to camp the night under the stars, to awaken early for a sunrise Kings Canyon Rim Walk. Sunsets were admired at both Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon Resorts. A Karrke Aboriginal Cultural Experience to learn about a range of local Indigenous customs.

After travelling back to Alice Springs and checking out the town, the duo jumped back into the car and headed out into the West MacDonnell Ranges. They stopped in at Simpsons Gap, Standley Chasm, Ellery Creek, Ochre Pits, Ormiston Gorge and Glen Helen. After an amazing day of exploration, the adventurers ended the day with an Earth Sanctuary Astronomy Tour and watched the starry night sky while learning about the constellations. "An awesome way to end the trip of a lifetime!" - Lauren
